Fujifilm XF1 reviews:

The Fuji XF1’s top plate is distinctly austere – it’s home to just the shutter button, customizable Fn button and exposure mode dial. With the lens in the fully-collapsed position, this camera is slender and pocketable. More about XF1 you can read on dpreview.com.

Another Fujifilm XF1 review comes from steve-digicams.com website. Here it is claimed that the XF1 performs very well in low light photos, with or without the flash, thanks in large part to its high-quality image sensor. This website concludes:

The XF1 creates some great photos, with good color and sharpness. It also has some very fast response times, with no significant shutter lag and with minimal shot-to-shot delays. The XF1 has a sharp LCD, and the on-screen menus can give you quite a few interesting control options. Those are all things you’d expect to find in a camera that costs around $500.


The image quality of XF1 is generally quite impressive for a compact camera of this type. The XF1 is able to record an impressive amount of details with images standing up to scrutiny when enlarged to 100%. Read more about this on trustedreviews.com website. This website concludes:

The XF1 enters a competitive field in the form of the enthusiast compact market, where it primarily distinguishes itself from its peers through its smart, retro design. The camera’s leather and matte aluminium finish, along with the manual zoom operation make the XF1 a pleasing camera to hold and use. Retract the lens fully and the camera can also be easily pocketed.


Another Fujifilm XF1 review comes from Photography Blog that, among other, says:

The XF1 is clearly an attempt to widen the appeal of Fujifilm’s X-series even further, with its clean lines and uncluttered looks resulting in a chic, classically styled camera
